Colleagues from Avro FC’s sponsor, LSH Auto, donned their football boots on Saturday 28th June and took on the Chairman’s team of coaches, staff and parents to raise funds for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.
A family fun day was created around the event, complete with a penalty shootout for children, silent auction, karaoke competition and a VIP bar.
Hundreds of people attended and more than £1200 was raised for the children’s hospital from ticket sales.
Ian Mcaulay, Digital Marketing Executive at LSH Auto, who organised the fundraiser, said: “The highlight of the day was the football match between LSH Auto and Avro FC. All the players donated, and the match was played in really good spirits. Avro FC took the victory, but the LSH Auto team made them work hard for it.”
The event came about as part of LSH Auto’s ongoing sponsorship of Avro FC’s Under 21s team, from its local dealership Mercedes-Benz of Whitefield.
As a key sponsor of the Club, LSH Auto has its logo featured on the arm of the new Avro FC Under 21s kit and will be partnering with the club to run more events in the coming months.
Ian Mcaulay said: “Our staff are already looking forward to the challenge and to raising lots of money for a fantastic cause.”
